this was going to be not just a political demonstration. this was going to be a monumental for wlak america. >> you mention the dixiecrats, white southern democrats, but we have a clip -- this was from governor, not a senator, george wallace, one of the preeminent dixie crats of '60s, responding to john f. kennedy, saying positive things about the march. >> the president has said this is in the great tradition. i shall look forward to being there, but at the same time, the great tradition, they have already alerted thousands upon thousands of troops in the area of washington for preparation for this matter and so this great tradition of marching in washington, on the one hand being invited, on the other hand, they're preparing for -- as if we were going to have a civil war in washington. >> i mean, bob, there was -- in 1963 everybody knows everybody thinks john f. kennedy is running for reelection. the question is george wallace going to run against him. for people that did not read through the era, hearing about george wallace, and reading about him now, it might be tempting to underestima

cocaine epidemic is over. crime throughout big cities all across america has been reduced dramatically. the prison population is clearly unsustainable fiscally. many have come to view it as morally reprehensible. as everyone on the panel has said today, we really have a meaningful opportunity on both the left and the right to come together and do what's right for america. reduce overcriminalization we've been experiencing in this country for decades. >> i want -- >> we'll pick that up after this break. >> all right. ne... boris earns unlimited rewards for his small business. can i get the smith contract, please? thank you. that's three new paper shredders.

in america were not supportive of this event and it's important to recognize that history. that being said, to answer your question, barack obama does have a very tall order ahead of him to try to match the moment, but we know in the past, as amanda said, his oratory skills have never been in doubt in terms of the preparation. look, you can't try to do what the king and other people did that day. he has to be his own speaker and he will rise to that moment. >> you always wonder about these things, too, liz. we think back of the march of 1963 and the way i taught it in school growing up. everyone gathered to hear martin luther king speak and he gave this great speech but the march on washington was so much bigger than that. he was one of many speakers and no one went there and expected to be a move by martin luther king. so many other people participating and i think we look at the program this weekend and we look at who's talking and what is being discussed. the message here is broader than just what we remember martin luther king talking about. >> i think the thing i'm really excited abou

to just kind of have america involved in this mess in the middle east for as long as it can and wants to see the u.s. bogged down. but it doesn't have the strength or the desire to really respond to the united states. >> how important is syria to russia right now. >> i think it's important in mainly a cosmetic way. they do have this port there but calling it a port is kind of an exaggeration. it's like this rusted sort of thing in the sea to reload its own ships. it's an arms client but not a major arms client. it's more like its last holdout in the middle east. more something for its own prestige. >> so i once said we'd revisit this issue of the red line. and it seems, again, i've heard two different justifications for potential military action here. the case that john kerry laid out was the humanitarian case. 426 children, 1400 civilians and you look at that and it seems like if the united states can do something, every instinct in your body is to say, we should do something. but at the same time, i hear it almost feels like that may be cover for a different case. the case being the

looked at spannic language tv it was car crashes and news from mexico and central america. when you put on spanish language media now, telemonday douun tel about speaker boehner and eric cantor. there's a great deal at stake. >> the other thing i want to ask you about is further compromise to get something through. there was an interesting story, i think it was national journal, who said basically a lot of immigration supporters have said, we've come mysepromised a. it's not worth supporting if it gets watered down any more. plan b, the way it was framed, they're reliance on president obama to expand deferred action program. for dreamers, certain children of undocumented immigrants, he suspended deportation. he could basically by executive order, the idea is expand that, expand the scope and it would be a waiting game. okay, we get to 2017, maybe you get a new democratic president, maybe you have a stronger democratic presence in the house, maybe republicans have lost another national election and blaming the latino vote for that, any growing sense that's the path? >> i think it is. the

here in america, you see the egyptian government shutting it down because it's propaganda to a certain extent. so, so many different factions and groups within each group that i think it's too difficult for anyone to come up with a clear policy if they're using this narrative of morsi and brotherhood because they are democratic aspirations to be realized. >> so, ambassador, looking at that from the standpoint of the united states and how to respond to something to like this, given the realities that ahmed outlined for us and the goal here for the united states, at least articulated we want to get back to democracy and have a peaceful reconciliation here. what practically can the united states can and should be doing in a situation like this? >> we can sit here and stand up for our principles and i believe in the end we could have suspended the pipe line of aid instead of talking about a military exercise that the egyptians would have canceled on their own. let's be practical about what is going on here. there is aid in the pipeline. i'm not in favor of completely suspending the aid. in

hyundai. >>> america samoa delegate house of representatives took to the house floor to call the teams name an ethnic slur that should not be protected by federal trademark. >> the origin of redskin is commonly attributed to not only killing native americans, but also cutting off certain body parts and scalping. these scalps were described as redskins. i submit, mr. speaker, native americans are human beings. they are not animals. >> his remarks for sending a letter to the football team's owner last month asking him to change the team's name. he attacked the democrat and his colleagues for a second time after those floor comments on tuesday. >> i'm telling you, folks, these people are people who do not like thir country as founded and they are all part of the obama coalition to transform this country into something it wasn't. >> want to bring in wilson, a member of the osage nation and an attorney who represents tribes. what you have seen in this back and forth and this effort to get this nickname changed in washington. seemed to be popping up for years and something that is getting mo

movement and has created today the most deeply and reliably republican region in america. the story is more complicated in arkansas. since 1964 it has voted for more republican presidential candidates than democrats. but it also gave us bill clinton, still has a democratic governor today. since reconstruction, only a grand total of three republican governors. as recently as three years ago three of the four house members and both u.s. senators from the state were democrats. arkansas didn't vote for barack obama in 2008. if hillary clinton, that's former arkansas first lady arkansas hillary clinton had been the democratic nominee, there's a good chance she would have carried the state. arkansas is not tom state like this. it's representative of a very specific area of the country, a cluster of rural states around apalacha and the ozarks, states that did not abandon the party with the same ferocity as the deep south. you've got arkansas, missouri, kentucky, tennessee, west virginia, even louisiana. these are states that al gore had a chance to win in 2000. if he had won just one of them, it w

. >> what is the vision of our new covenant? an america in which middle class incomes, not middle class taxes, are going up. an america, yes, in which the wealthiest few, those making over $200,000 a year are asked to pay for their fair share. >> he won that election and then he made that promise the cornerstone of his budget, income tax on the top 1.2% of earners, the creation of a new tax bracket, 39.6% for highest incomes. he said it would help tame deficits that exploded in the reagan and bush 41 ears. ross perot made it the centerpiece of his presidential campaign, and won 20% of the vote, despite being kind of crazy. little enthusiasm for the budget clinton drew up. plenty of democrats were nervous about endorsing a tax hike and among republicans unanimous opposition because republicans were coming off a civil war of taxes. a civil war that had broken out when bush 41 cut a deal with democrats to raise them in 1990. by 1993 the anti-tax side on the fight was claiming vindication. 1993 was also the first time in 12 years democrats controlled the white house. the gop had grown far m
